Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Trina Heidt
Every year Tiger travels to his Uncle Roy's to help with the annual cattle drive to move the animals to their summer pasture. In year's past, Tiger has always had to wear tennis shoes while the other cowboys had boots. This year, Tiger finally has a pair of brand new cowboy boots and can't wait to show them off. He feels like a real cowboy. When he arrives at the ranch, nobody notices his brand new boots. Tiger figures everyone is just too busy to pay attention. The day wears on and the work of keeping the cattle together becomes tougher and dirtier, just like Tiger's boots. When they finally reach the pasture, Tiger and his boots are "muddy, stained , and soggy." Only then, after all of his hard work does anyone notice that Tiger has "new" cowboy boots. Morck uses her experience as a writer and rancher to humorously bring to life the calamities and obstacles that sometimes befall hard-working cowboys and cowgirls. Graham, one of Canada's finest western illustrators, uses the Rocky Mountain foothills as a beautiful backdrop to the wonderful story created by Morck.
